Abstract

Spirochetes of the genus Treponema were cultured from 7 of 10 cases of digital dermatitis in sheep. Two cultures comprised Treponema phagedenis-like and Treponema medium/Treponema vincentii-like spirochetes, respectively, while the remaining cultures comprised mixed populations of Treponema medium/Treponema vincentii-like, Treponema phagedenis-like, and Treponema denticola/Treponema putidum-like organisms
